2010 Evesham Wood – VOTC

 
Marcus Looze and Andy Osterhaus of Northwest Wine with Evesham winemaker Erin Nuccio“2010 is a VOTC -
Vintage of the Century”

- Erin Nuccio, Evesham Wood

Erin Nuccio, owner and winemaker of Evesham Wood, thinks 2010 is a vintage of the century. Wait – better than 2008?! Well, they’ll age as long but they’re also a lot more approachable right now. You can open these and taste them over the course of a week – they stay fresh and delicious. Taste his new releases and I think you’ll agree.

Erin describes the 2010 vintage: “As soon as the wines were in the barrel I knew we had fantastic wines. Very concentrated and what Evesham is all about. Complex, balanced, really exciting with a lot of age-ability. 2010 will go down as a top vintage.”

at right above, Marcus, Andy and Erin taste the new wines

Evesham Wood “La Grive Bleue” 2010
$24.15 in any 12 bottle order ($27.95 retail)

Rose petals and violets, fresh, with a rich, full texture. Pure bright raspberry and floral notes fill the flavor, and the juicy finish has a touch of wood spice, cinnamon and violets. Cellar for 3-10 years. La Grive Bleue is a small, 18 year-old section of Evesham’s estate vineyard. It is organically certified.

Evesham Wood Eola-Amity Hills 2010
$23.35 in any 12 bottle order ($25.95 retail)

There are luscious layers to this wine. Red cherry fruit, spicy sweet smoke, toasted marshmallow, and herbs fill the nose. It is a very fruit driven wine with dominant cherry, raspberry and blackberry forming a nice complexity – layers of flavors on top of each other. You can sense the separate components clearly. In the finish, hints of asian spices – cinnamon, clove, and warm spices join the cherry and sweet oak.  Age from 3-7 years and decant before drinking.

This is a “reserve” bottling, made from the best eight barrels of Hidden Rocks Vineyard and the best eight barrels from Eola Springs Vineyard.
